I see your point, but they are two distinct points that don’t necessarily conflict. The 2nd Amendment allows Americans to have guns to protect against an abusive government, as the IRA have protected Ireland from British terrorism (as the American revolutionaries protected the Americans in 1776). That is wholly different than carrying guns into church and school because of insecurity and paranoia. The opposite of gun control means no gun control, and who supports letting criminals have weapons? So, even the NRA supports “gun control” - it is just a matter of degree.
"The opposite of gun control means no gun control"
That is the False Dilemma Fallacy.
You’re treading on Ad Hominem and Strawman argument fallacies with your “paranoia” argument.
Also, mentioning the NRA is a Red Herring as cerebralzero did not bring it up.
That’s 4 logical fallacies, which isn’t an actual argument. Supporting the IRA and gun control is still hypocritical.
Criminals already have weapons… they kinda don’t obey the law and will do whatever it takes to obtain the tools to carry out their crimes. Trust me, they have better weapons than you or I could ever afford to get our hands on.
Funny how many people are for separation of church and state but still want the state to tell churches how to deal with guns.
And what marriage is.
I laugh so hard…
When my liberal friends complain about how the government is run by the rich and powerful and how the police are corrupt and abuse their power, but then also talk about how we need to get rid of all the guns. Seriously? You don’t trust the government or the cops, but you want to git rid of the only thing that gives you any sort of recourse against possible tyranny? Does that make sense to anyone else?
The thing is I’m pro-gun control but like I have such paranoia and anxiety about home invasions I feel like I might buy a hunting rifle or s/to when I start living on my own……
A bolt action rifle won’t do much for self defense. It’s to long and too hard to reload. Get a semi auto.
An AR-15 fits the bill pretty nicely…
Funny how right wing nutjobs will tell you that “Islam” does this, “Islam” does that, yet when the debate’s about guns they’re pretty quick to say “guns don’t kill people, people do!”
What? You make no sense.
Islam doesn’t “do” anything, radical Islamic D-bags do. The same is true for guns.
OP, care to try again?
